What are the tax implications for my beneficiaries when they receive my pension?

Any money in your pension will normally be deemed to be outside of your estate for Inheritance Tax purposes.

Usually if the pension holder passed away before age 75, payments to the beneficiaries are free of income tax. If the pension holder was 75 or over when they passed away payments to the beneficiaries are subject to income tax at their marginal rate.
